Peter Kindel shares his cheese journey on today’s Cutting the Curd with Diane Stemple. Hear how Peter got his start in the cheese world, and how his travels in France and England changed his perspective on cheesemaking entirely. Peter talks about his experiences working with Neal’s Yard Dairy and helping develop a cheese called Ogleshield. Why did Peter decide to get involved with the agricultural side of cheesemaking? Peter speaks to the risks of dealing with raw milk, and why the market over-regulates raw milk distribution. This episode has been sponsored by Fairway Market.
“When I was trying to source so many great cheeses from Europe, I realized that we needed to make cheese. And we need to create regional agricultural economies based on that product.” [14:25]
